Speaker Spotlight

Hear from Joe Petryk, this week's Spotlight Speaker!
Joe Petryk, Technical Administrator, Alberta Municipal Affairs
Joe works for Alberta Municipal Affairs – Community & Technical Support – Edmonton – and is currently the Technical Administrator for the private sewage discipline regulated under the Safety Codes Act. Joe is a graduate of NAIT, obtaining a diploma in the discipline of civil engineering technology as a Certified Engineering Technologist (CET). Joe has been providing a public service for almost 40 years in various Ministries, in roles related consumer legislation and the building/development industry, with the past 18 years directly related to the private sewage industry. The private sewage industry continues to evolve on the fronts of code development, installation standards and product development and provides for a very active and interesting relationship with industry stakeholders. 

Joe and his wife Gail have two children and are proud grandparents to 3 grandchildren.

Joe grew up on a farm north of Edmonton and is no stranger to waste management (relocating many an outhouse). 

Updates to the Alberta Standard of Practice
A new Standard of Practice will be released in 2021.  This presentation will provide information and insight on the key changes that will be incorporated into the Standard and how they will impact system design.  Joe will also go over some of the policy and procedure changes his department has enacted in the past year.
